I've seen it mentioned that policies can be set. As a HS teacher, I want the ability to control these different settings on my own as it can change from class to class and from club to club. But key: I need to be able to download or see all chats, even DMs between students, for liability and safety reasons. Students can text or communicate outside school provided tools otherwise. But for class and school related activities, while for lack of distraction or a virtual "pair-and-share", it would be nice to enable and disable during a meeting the ability for students to message one another not publicly.

Thanks to everyone who has voted on this. The team is making progress to ensure we have a safe and secure way to allow teachers to “hard mute” students during a meeting. We will share more details as we have them.
